    Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler offered his side of the story regarding recent personal information that has been publicly addressed. He wants you to understand his choice to return to rehab and to tell you why he did so, in his own words. He is bravely working on his recovery.

    "I picked up a bottle and drank. This occurred a few times and that is a few times too many. I knew that this had to permanently stop. That is the moment I picked up the phone, before it got out of hand, to get help. I had kicked hard drugs several years ago and now it is time to get rid of the urges of drinking alcohol. I am at a great facility and will stay here until I am comfortable to be home to work the program on my own. I love you all for understanding, being patient and supporting my decision. Like my peers, I will beat this too, so I can return to music and beat my drums!"

    His band canceled its tour for now, while he seeks treatment.

    Good luck, Steven. We are pulling for you.

    What is your favorite Guns N' Roses song from the Steven Adler era? So, basically, what's your top track from Appetite for Destruction?
